moving forward with gun control measures but at the federal level it seems like a tough sell. harry reid doubts such a measure to ban assault weapons would get through the house. what does that mean for national gun control laws? are we at a stalemate? >> i don't believe we are. it comes down to what are we going to be able to get bipartisan support for in the congress? and there are three things that i believe are possible to get across the aisle support. my major focus has been since january 8th on mental health services and awareness and i'll be dropping a bill today that will move in that direction called the mental health first aid act so that's one thing that i believe is possible. there seems to be some cross unanimity across the aisle on mental health services and my bill will hopefully be one of the first steps in that direction. >> you met with vice president biden as part of a task force convened by the president. the vice president was supposed to deliver his recommendations today to the president, but he delayed that. why the holdup? >> i'm not sure i could tell you why the

proposals that pass the senate. well, what did harry reid say last weekend about voting on any bills having to do with gun legislation? they are not going to vote on anything unless they know it can pass the house. here we are, stalemate. >> exactly. >> back to you, no, over to you. neither one of them -- and this is what makes the nra's bizarre decision that they did today, the risk -- right now, harry re reid's the best friend they've got, and if they figure out a way to alienate senate democrats who have carried their water before with the stunt they pulled today with this bizarre web ad, they are going to live to regret it long term. >> one other thing about the nra, wayne lapierre said in part, barack obama, joe biden and their gun ban allies want to bully you, strip you of your second amendment freedoms. i warned you that day is coming, now it's here. then a call for greater membership, which is exactly what's happening. nia malika, the battle is now joined, not a battle either side wanted to engage in during the presidential campaign. we just went through a two-year campaign, where e

majority leader harry harry reid said one of his biggest regrets is not reforming the filibuster. the president announced he was considering major changes to the rulings. reed wanted to change the rules by requiring filibuster senators to occupy the floor and speak if he want to delay legislation. now, however, as we approach the deadline for making the decision, it seems like senator reed maybe backing away. the senate is currently in recess until tuesday and when they return they'll have to make a decision, whether to make good on genuine reform of the filibuster. a watered-down compromise that many say doesn't go far enough. this is one of those reformers. senator john udall. and the executive director of the democratic national committee. thank you both for being here. >> thank you, great to be here with you, chris. you started covering this very early. >> senator, you just sat down and i said this morning before this interview i looked at the notes that i transcribed from the interview i did in your office on 2011 on precisely this issue which was the last time it was with y

? harry reid has said they can pass this in the senate but doesn't think it could pass the house. is the president basically saying look, forget assault weapons ban, i'm not going to get it so i'm going to go for these 19 things? >> you know, i worked as you know for president clinton and democrats have a kind of ancestral memory of when they passed the assault weapons ban and the brady bill and the tremendous political price that democrats in congress paid. i think probably in addition to the substance of it, one of the things the white house wants to do is to begin to break the idea that the nra has such omniscient complete power over government, make the progress he can make and that will actually help in the legislative fights, not drain away the energy. >> the nra is seen as all powerful in so many ways. we have a really great report on that in just a moment. let me just ask one more question. it still seems to me aside from all the new things you can do, we can discuss what those are, and the nuances of it, there is this issue with the fact there are a lot of laws on the bo

say, including harry reid, suggesting that an assault weapons ban wouldn't get through the house. you just heard a member of the house saying he believes the president should take any action. what's your reaction? >> absolutely. people like larry pratt and the nra also oppose things like making sure someone on the terrorist watch list can't get a gun. they don't believe in any restrictions whatsoever. look, nothing in the second amendment says that you have the right to bear arms cheaply and without any convenience. the government has the right to regulate in any way to the limits of the law. they absolutely can do that and they have a compelling interest in doing that. there are things the executive could do without congress and the president should do them all. we haven't had an atf, head of the atf for six years. they should vigorously go after gun trafficking. a lot of weapons are bought in the secondary market. >> 40% of gun sales have no background check whatsoever. >> exactly. >> 40%. >> exactly. all you would have to do to close that up would be to say, okay, fine, if you sell

's dialogue. >> the bottom line is that harry reid is concerned about asking democratic members, especially in red states to walk the plank on a sensitive issue like this. >> reporter: that's exactly it. a lot of people look at harry read and know that he is from a pro gun state. he's in nevada. he's a gun owner himself. but it's not necessarily about his politics or personal advocacy for guns. it the political reality that never mind the republicans, democrats, a lot of democrats who are in vulnerable, political situations right now may not want to do anything until, unless they think it can actually get to the president for a signature. >> dana bash at the capitol, thanks so much for that. >>> a spokesman for the national rifle association tells cnn there's been an unprecedented spike in membership. about 250,000 new members have signed up. for more on the challenge president obama faces on pushing comprehensive gun reforms through the congress, i'm joined by chief political analyst gloria borger. when you look at this in a nutshell, the question arises early what is better to sort of put

among them, senator harry reid, the senate majority leader, really not that eager to get involved with this. and we'll see if the comprehensive bill ever comes to a floor vote. >> let's talk about things that did get passed. the president was able to pass health care legislation at a time when he had both houses of congress in his corner. he does not have that now. how does he go about skirting the gop-run house to get something passed? >> i don't think he can skirt. he's going to have to deal with them, engage with them. i would take an issue with my colleague on the gun thing. the president wants to -- his legacy is going to be based upon jobs. if he's going to be a greater president, it's about creating jobs. this gun thing, he didn't look for this issue, it came to him. that's what you do as a great president, you have to seize the moment of the day. that's what he's doing on guns. i think the democrats and republicans will come with him. but at the end of the day, barack obama will be a great president if he turns this economy around. >> susan, you as a republican, the gop is
